A top campaign aide for Sen. Hillary Clinton is predicting big wins for her in the coming weeks, first in West Virginia, then Kentucky.
"You win those states, you win the general election," campaign chairman Terry McAuliffe said.
He says that will prove she's the best candidate to take on Republican John McCain in November.
McAuliffe also says he expects the nomination to be decided in the first few weeks of June. Until then, he said the Democrats should let the voters vote and everyone else should "stay out of it."
But, Clinton is is still banking on her disputed wins in Michigan and Florida to beat Obama.
The national party had refused to count Michigan's delegates because the state violated party rules by holding an early primary. Michigan Democrats have finally reached a plan to get its delegates seated at the national convention.
But most uncommitted superdelegates say they'll stay on the sidelines until the last Democratic primary on June 3rd.
Meanwhile, Barack Obama is searching for more support from the Democratic superdelegates who will ultimately decide the nomination.
He created a stir with an unannounced visit to the House of Representatives, seeking support from Democratic members of Congress. He was surrounded by well-wishers calling him, "Mr. President" and reaching out to pat him on the back.
The Illinois senator told reporters afterwards that he wants to bring the party together behind him as soon as possible. But he recognizes he'll have to keep on working to finally defeat Hillary Rodham Clinton.
